    Sun & Sea RealtyWhat is better than living on a tropic island? Warm breezes, blue skies, azure waters and white sandy beaches, the ultimate place to relax and just savor the moment. Im lucky living here, says Marc Schotborg, owner of Sun & Sea Realty. When I was young I moved to Aruba from the neighboring island Curacao and I always liked the Aruban lifestyle. Its typical mix of di erent cultures, the bridge between the Americas and Europe plus its tropical nature make it a perfect place to lay your hat.

    Buildings and architecture have always played an important role in my life, my father was a technical drawer, and helped design amongst many project, one of the rst time share hotels on Aruba, the Aru-ba Beach Club and the rst planned community on the island, now famous for its excellent golf course, Tierra Del Sol. When studying to become a professional licensed realtor in the Netherlands, many types and architectural styles made a lasting impression.

    Being a realtor is not just selling a house to another customer. You are nding a match to t that person, their taste, and in most cases to their dreams.

    With over 10 years experience in real estate, both o and on Aruba, working for established companies and now for my own, Im still hap-py and content in my work. Sure, right now we are experiencing the a ermath of the worldwide crisis and I ventured on my own just a er, but is there truly the perfect time to start something, or do you , a er careful consideration and planning, just take the plunge? Aruba has been, is and will be a great location and what better way to prove it then my success?

    As is virtually anyones dream, before the crisis, people would get large big ocean front homes and there are still

    those who can a ord a (sec-ond) home along the ocean. Who wouldnt want to wake up, open your French doors and take a quick refreshing dive in the ocean or at night gaze at the dark blue vastness with the stars and planets as

    your guides while you dri o ? As is usually the case with less prosperous times, people are looking for di erent ways to own their piece of paradise.

    And of course, people will always need a home to call their own. We have noticed the impact of the reces-sion, but as is Arubas versatile nature, the trends shi ed to new parts of the market.

    Owning a condominium, for instance always was a good al-ternative with less maintenance worries and Ive noticed that especially repeat visitors and timeshare holders are looking

    to buy their share in one of the new projects that are being developed around the island. With downtown being revamped and plans are being developed to start the same for San Nicolas, many people are looking for possible investment options and I, as a licenced realtor, can help you nd what is just right for you.

    Another trend island wide is people going back to the their roots, mixed with modern inventions. New homes that are being build

    round the island, in planned communities, use solar panels and innovative design to be comfortable yet environmentally friendly. Just give me a call Im more than happy to show you your options of living in paradise.

    People are looking for di erent ways to own their piece of paradise

  • Living SmallSmarter & more e cient use of spaceIts a trend. When a crisis hit, people reevaluate their needs and go back to their roots. As is the famous example, during the crisis in the eighties, people moved back to the city and Manhattan became the upscale place to live, where before it was the last place to be seen.

    During the following decade and Internet bubble, it became fashion-able again to move away from work and live lavishly in the county side.

    A er the world-wide crisis that hit us, people are yet again reevaluating the way they want to live. Even before the crisis, due to our increasingly aging population world-wide people started looking at di erent ways to live.

    A er all, when you are rst time home owners, your wishes and expectations are a lot di erent than when youre retiring.

    Plus the home with the white picket fence also means a higher maintenance schedule then a condo where you can just turn the key.

    And do you really want to commute back and forth, or dont you mind a

    smaller space, but more quality time with your fam-ily. I guess the combination of people becoming more environmentally aware and the crisis, and because of that rising building costs, forced us to rethink the way we design or lives and therefore our homes.
